Writing liturgy based on sacred text is an ancient Jewish tradition. Join acclaimed liturgist Alden Solovy in exploring four texts as the basis of writing your own new liturgical compositions. In this four-week immersion, we’ll examine sacred texts that challenge, provoke and inspire. All are welcome.

A liturgist, poet, and educator, his teaching spans from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Jerusalem to Limmud UK and synagogues throughout North America. He’s the author of This Grateful Heart: Psalms and Prayers for a New Day and has written more than 750 pieces of new liturgy. His new book, This Joyous Soul: A New Voice for Ancient Yearnings, was published in 2019. He made aliyah in 2012. Read his work at www.ToBendLight.com.
